Teaser Tuesday, July 6 - Eddie Signwriter

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page either in the comments below or on your own blog (give a link to your blog so we can check it out!)
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This week's teaser:

"She, Nana Oforiwaa -- a woman of such power, who could make the world do anything -- was consenting to no longer being young when other people still were.  Lord, it wasn't easy -- to give everything up for a child, a weak-willed child -- but she was doing it.

p. 65, Eddie Signwriter by Adam Schwartzman

    The Bluest Eye - Toni Morrison pg 23

    I have a confession to make...I've never completed any Toni Morrison book. I buy them but never finish them. I actually have 2 copies of The Bluest Eye on my shelf. I am going to finish this to help celebrate the 40th anniversary!!!!! Wish me luck......
